Hi everyone! This is my first blog ever, so I’m gonna do my best! Something happened to me a few days back that I thought I’d share with you all. Well, it all started when me and my mom decided to take a vacation to California to visit my Grandma. We’re now staying at her house for a whole month. She lives in SoCal (Southern Cali) and for those of you who don’t know, SoCal is very hot, very humid, and in most spots looks like this.
We decided to take the Amtrak train all the way here because my mom is terrified of flying. Sadly, we had to switch trains at 5:30 A.M.! Exhausted and confused, me and my mom heard “Last call!” from a conductor and we quickly rushed off the train. It turns out that wasn’t for us but we didn’t know that until later. So we get on a different train that shook so much I couldn’t hold a can of soda without it sloshing all over me and the previous train was never heard from again.
Now you think it’s over and nothing went wrong. But, here’s where the trouble starts. Anyone who has been on an Amtrak train would know that the seats fold into a bed. They would also see that there is a small space under the chairs for carry on luggage. Well when we left the train confused and in a hurry we forgot one thing… Ladies and Gentlemen we forgot my Playstation 2 and all of my games. :’(
That’s right folks. The glorious 9 year-old console and 5 games were lost under a chair on a train… cold and alone. Now when we discovered this I burst into tears; A great way to start a vacation huh? >:( So, for about 2-3 days we kept calling Amtrak and all the stations that could help us find it. They only responded with: “Sorry, we aren’t responsible for carry on luggage,” or, “Sorry we couldn’t find it.” And that may be the case. They might’ve looked and didn’t see it. If that’s true than obviously it got stolen. By who, I don’t know. It could’ve been a passenger who saw it and said “jackpot!” Although I doubt that because it was in a medical bag and anyone who isn’t complete scum wouldn’t steal a medical bag. I think it was one of the workers that stole it. I think they checked it, realized what it was, and kept it. It still saddens me to this day to know that my PS2 is gone. Lots of people have told me it’s just and object and shouldn’t mean anything to you. But, any gamer knows my problem. It’s not the playstation I’m really upset about. It’s the memory card! That’s right, all my data, my hard work, sweat, and tears (not really tears but, you know…) is all gone! No more Need for Speed: Most Wanted. No more Guitar Hero. No more The Sims 2. No more Destroy All Humans 2! It’s all gone! WWHHYYYY!!! WHY ME?! WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE!!!
Alright so I’m getting a little carried away. I have questions to all of you that I would like answers to. My first question is: Have you ever had a bad experience on a train or with a thief? Has anyone ever stolen something of value that belonged to you? Or have you ever had a waitress in the Dining Car of a train spit in your soup? Leave a comment telling me about any bad experiences you’ve had along those lines. If you don’t have any, then leave a comment about your opinion on thieves. Do you like 'em, hate 'em, or are you just indifferent? Also, if you liked this blog then in your comment please let me know you liked it and if you want me to make more let me know; I love support! This is only my first blog so if it sucked I won’t make more… Haha! Ok so that’s about it. Thanks for reading!
